It's been done before here and there and so I thought I'd start this and make it a sticky. A sort of collective area for us all to share our images and questions and ideas...

Let's see how it goes.

All I would say, is unlike me below (I didn't really nick them...), please don't nick pics and upload as it can get us in trouble, and it's wrong anyway.

:D

I thought I'd start it off this time with a look at one of my peer's amazing architectural photographs I have just swiped from his site.

This is one of my favorite photo's from this year taken through the windscreen of a moving car on boxing day morning at just gone 9am, in north Devon and at temperatures heading towards -20 in the frost hollows.

The image is unedited other than being squeezed by photobucket when I uploaded it.

It's more impressive at its native res :(

I'm still quite pleased with this one:

344_4482 by MikeDavis, on Flickr

It's a bit of a cheat -- with the climber and valley bottom exposed right the sky blew out, with detail retained in the sky the climber/rock face was virtually a sillhouette. So I took two shots, one exposed for the foreground, one for the sky and then merged them in Photoshop later on. Kind of tricky because I was hanging off a couple of rungs attached to a sheer face at the time, so getting both frames sufficiently close to be able to later put one on top of the other involved a fair bit of luck ;)

This one's a bit of a favourite too:

Right at the edge of the woods, low sun, single remote flash low down and to the right (pretty much pointing straight back at the sun) to fill in the shadows that would otherwise obscure the rider's face. 1/100s exposure and a few tries to get the timing right.

I've turned into a bit of a long exposure junkie since I bought my SLR. So combining that with my recent new-found love of retrobikes I came up with this, this evening........
